    With its ethernet backbone for enhanced security, the Rivian digital experience learns drivers' preferences, adapts to driving habits and keeps adventure at the forefront. It can help you discover hidden trailheads, scenic byways and other attractions - all while monitoring the performance, efficiency and safety of the vehicle.

    High level the interface is nice and clean. The car display when driving seems pretty basic. Hope this evolves and features more detail like Tesla does for their autopilot.

    Will be interesting to see what if any music streaming service providers Rivian will partner with. With the recent Amazon investment, I could see that being a natural fit, but I’m not familiar with their music service. Assume it isn’t as feature rich as Spotify or Apple Music.

    The off-road camera feed on the display behind the steering wheel is awesome. Would be cool to have a record feature to save videos from this low cam as well as a more head on shot GoPro style.

    Looking forward to seeing more about the user interface both in the dash screens and Rivian app for their cars.

    This is awesome. I've gotten used to the minimalist approach in the Model 3, so that screen behind the wheel better be useful!

    I would rather have eye movement up and down for immediate needed functions versus eye contact to a center stack. Just my thoughts.

    I hear that, but I'm guessing you have not spent significant time driving a Model 3. It took me less than 2 hours to get used to it and now I can't imagine having a display cluster behind the wheel. Road visibility is improved, and it's especially nice at night!

    Everyone has their own opinions, and that's cool... Looks like Rivian may be the best of both.

    Yup, I'd rather have the choice of not having to glance over at a center console screen for vital info like speed, speed limit.

    What's surprising to me actually is that neither Rivian nor Tesla has introduced head-up display in their vehicles, considering how technology laden their cars are. If you've ever driven a vehicle with a good HUD setup, it's hard to go back to looking down (or over) at gauges.

    Couldn't agree more. My wife has a Mazda with a nifty HUD. I am surprised more cars don't have these - not just limited to Rivian and Tesla.

    Yea I can't imagine HUD technology being that expensive to implement. Even Chevys have them now.

    Instead we get to look forward to even more driver distracting screen layouts like this concept from CES. And a screen in the middle of the steering wheel :CWL:

    And like this article says, all these screens might kill us.

    Will the cameras behind the rear view mirror make recordings which can be saved to be used in accident investigations? Things like idiots comming off cross streets without stopping, drivers turning from the lane left of you to exit to a street right of you at about 35 mph with less than a car length of space. You folks are on the road, you know what I am talking about.

    The self driving level 2 will not be activated but can we set up feedback telling us what the vehicle would be going if it would be doing if you were just observing? Things like braking, faster acceleration, not following so closely, not so close to the edge of the lane and other such information.

    Will the Rivian self driving system be learning your driving habits to see where you are comfortable and asses your skills, habits and distractions?

    I'd also like the Rivian's cameras to act as a dash cam with recording ability. Tesla's front camera and side cameras all have "dash cam" recording abilities now, so no reason why Rivian's won't be able to. Just a matter of whether Rivian decides to give us this ability. Memory is so cheap these days, it shouldn't cost much at all to offer this feature.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more of what this has to offer. As many have mentioned the potential for cool features is huge, hopefully they have some surprises for us in the coming months.

    There's a lot to reveal before release and I can't wait for more news.

    I really liked how the power to each wheel was displayed when driving in the dirt.

    I live in Montana where the Interstate speed limit is 80 mph and you probably wont get stopped for 5 over. Wyoming next state over is the same. Not the speed I normally drive, though. My R1T will get the full test, I wonder if I can make it drift corners on secondary roads.
